Washington Redskins starting offensive tackle and former Wahoo Morgan Moses will host the first-ever Pride & Passion Competition Cup on Tuesday, Dec. 8 at Marshall High School in Falls Church, Va. The event is the first of its kind and pits approximately 30 students from two Northern Virginia high schools – Marshall and Lake Braddock – against each other to create and present marketing and community engagement plans for Morgan Moses and his developing MOE Foundation (Motivating Others through Education). Students in the competition are active members of their respective high school’s marketing clubs and/or DECA organization, an International Association of marketing students that provides members and advisors with development activities. “I look forward to seeing the passion and creativity from both teams, said Moses. “As someone who struggled with their education growing up, I could not be more excited to host and judge this competition among our next generation of leaders and entrepreneurs.”
